What a clever way of demystifying the Tarot, retaining its essential nature and spiritual value, whilst making it accessible and useful to the general population! Well done! I also got a SPOT ON reading from the cards. REALLY spot on.

Working with these changed my life! No...really
by Kim Paider
Working with these cards was a MAJOR catalyst for a recent huge change in my life. They provide such well-balanced information and it's so practical and easy to apply. I would recommend these for ANYONE who is open to change and open to learning more about themselves. The cards have this amazing quality of connecting you with your inner knowing -- something that people generally have a hard time trusting. Somehow the cards open up a space for you to really access your own spirit and see what you need to be working on.
Best $25 I have spent in a while. I cannot sing the praises of these cards enough.
They are also really beautiful. Lynn's art is soulful and beautiful. I am beyond grateful for having discovered these cards and I only hope more people will get their hands on them so they can open up and grow with the cards.
Also -- if you get a chance to do any of Lynn's workshops with the cards (lynnzavaro.com), they are an invaluable way to enhance your use of the cards. Even her e-newsletter always brings me some new insights, and I am usually not excited by e-newsletters no matter how much I like the person who is sending them. But, Lynn has something really special.
Gush gush gush. I love these cards. I love Lynn. My life is better for having worked with these cards.
Anyone still wanting to grow as a Human Being should "play" this Game!
I have been using Lynn's beautiful and fun deck "Game of YOU" since it came out on day 1 !
The images on each card make you feel good. They are user friendly , happy, uplifting little helpers that set you on your true path on a daily basis. I cant say enough thanks to Lynn for making this info available in such an easy , all embracing way.
The "tools" suggested after each card is really where the work is but even if you only read the card and keep the words close to you during the day, you will feel more empowered.
Vibrant Cards, Powerful Wisdom, March 1, 2011
by Janet Boyer "JanetBoyer.com"
Lively colors splashed upon 78 cards--painted by the author using a intuitive technique called "Process Painting"--offer seekers a portal into the emotional, spiritual, physical, mental and relational components of the Self, as well as the 22 major Life Path steps common to everyone.
If the description of The Game of You sounds familiar, it's because this particular oracular system is based upon the structure of Tarot, but the designations and titles have been updated for a more psychological approach.
Although all cards are re-named, the Game of You deck still resembles a Tarot deck in that:
- Roman Numerals assigned to the Life Path Cards (bordered in purple and corresponding to the Major Arcana)
- Red borders for the Spiritual Level Cards
- Blue borders for the Emotional Level Cards
- Yellow borders for the Mental Level Cards
- Green borders for the Physical Level Cards
- Inner Family Support System designated Child, Young Adult, Mother and Father (correlating to the Court Cards)
The Game of You deck comes in a large sturdy flip-top box with a 223-page companion book that explains each card and provides an actionable Tool for probing, contemplating or applying the wisdom of each. However, this book is much more than a mere deck guide: even on its own, the exercises, examples and questions presented by Lynn Zavaro lights the way to a more compassionate, mindful path to self-awareness.
The bright, cheerful artwork reminds me of some of the whimsical Hay House empowerment decks or the Mythical Goddess Tarot), with the glossy 4 ¾ x 3 ¼ inch cards shuffling easily.
I've been using the Game of You for the last several weeks and, I have to tell you, it's been such wonderfully grounding tool, especially after a long day writing or doing client Tarot readings. When I'm feeling weary, too much "in my head" or spiritually drained, I grab this deck. I'm not exaggerating when I say that after I draw one card and read Zavaro's soothing, illuminating insights, my shoulder muscles relax, I breathe deeper and restfulness washes over me.
Every one-card reading with the Game of You has been incisively accurate, usually confirming what I know, but sometimes fail to practice. I had to smile when I drew the same card two days in a row, with the third day's card pretty much echoed the previous wisdom!
Weaving in gentle yet powerful approaches for self-inquiry, mind/body awareness, visualizations, meditative prompts and more, The Game of You provides a psychological depth and spiritual richness lacking in many Tarot books, allowing the cards to be the profoundly transformational tool that it can be.
Those who resonate with the teachings of Don Miguel Ruiz, Byron Katie, Eckhart Tolle, Sharon Salzburg, Jack Kornfield, Natalie Goldberg and others will likely embrace The Game of You, especially since the author uses the cards to confront dualistic thinking, disempowering mindsets, narrow perspectives, and self-defeating habits.
I love the Game of You and I recommend it highly!
I've been following Lynn and The Game of You long before the launch. I love how each card tends to speak to me on the day I need it the most. Her art work is uplifting, and the messages are very motivating. It's a gentle reminder to be gentle on ourselves through the rough patches of life. I have given The Game of You as gifts to family and friends and they have all loved the original and fresh take on Lynn's messages! Thank you! Jen Doc
More than a game
By Lawrence R. Levi
I went to party where people were choosing cards from The Game of You, passing them around and discussing them with fervor. Impressed by how it inspired conversation of a personal nature I picked one up for my psychotherapy practice. It's proved particularly helpful when couples are going at each other. By having each chose a card that resonated with them it immediately brings the right-brain into play, reversed or at least slows the escalation and shifted focus from other onto self. Now I find myself shuffling through the cards between clients. This is proving to be more than a 'game'.
I have been reading a card every single day on the website for ages. My own deck arrived yesterday from Amazon and I was thrilled to receive it. Just what the doctor ordered! I seek direction and guidance and connection daily and these cards are divine intervention for me. I need them and I use them and I love them!
Besides the beautifully written and insightful words the artwork is spectacular. So much more than 1000 words could say!! I will wallow in them for a long time.
The Best Game You'll Ever Play!
I LOVE The Game of You! I began drawing cards on the website and was blown away by the accuracy of the feedback. Then I attended Lynn's workshops and uncovered ways to live my best life. I am so grateful to now have this life-changing book and card deck at my fingertips; it's the perfect way to practice, daily, what I learned in the workshops.
A fun way to approach self transformation
This card deck is amazing and chock full of insight. Every time I pull a card, it seems to speak directly to what I'm experiencing. The tools listed on the cards are great, too. Some go very deep and I feel like I just had a therapy session...with myself! Other cards stay with me and a day later I am just struck by what I read and I have a little "aha!" in my kitchen.
You can draw one card or do multiple card spreads - all detailed in the book - and not a day goes by that I don't pull at least one card. It's fun and addicting! This is a great gift for anyone interested in self transformation. The author also does workshops in L.A. that I've attended and they are fantastic!
My new favorite book
I can't stop playing this book/card deck!! I'm having huge breakthroughs and a ton of FUN. I just ordered more for friends - it makes a great gift!
